Color Cue {8} and Cardabilities Challenges

Monday, September 20, 2010

I needed an anniversary card for my in-laws, so I decided to combine the Color Cue {8} Challenge with the Cardabilities Challenge. I love how this card turned out! Perfect fall colors!
Isn't the patterned paper just gorgeous?! I couldn't believe how perfectly it matched the colors for the challenge, so of course I had to use it. The yellow vertical piece of cs is made with a stamp from the Double-Line Doodles SU set. I love my Frames with a Flourish SU set, but haven't used it all that much. I thought it was a nice complement to the patterned paper. Finally, the polka-dot ribbon ties it all together. Thanks for stopping by! I would love to hear your feedback! :-)

Stamps: Stampin' Up - Frames with a Flourish, Everyday Flexible Phrases, Double-Line Doodles
Cardstock: Stampin' Up - Whisper White, So Saffron, Bravo Burgundy, Old Olive
Patterned Paper: Heidi Grace Designs
Ink: Stampin' Up - Chocolate Chip, Always Artichoke
Ribbon: Joann's Papercrafting Ribbon
Other: Dimensionals

  2. Very pretty card -- great take on the sketch. Glad you played along with us at Cardabilities.

  3. Neat card! You did great matching the designer paper to the color scheme for the challenge. Even though it's a floral pattern, the colors keep it from looking too girly, and I like that.

  4. That is a great card! I love the sketches at cardabilities. :)

  5. awesome card! I love how you sued the colors to make it look feminine but not over the top girly =)
